Bonterra intersects 14.3 g/t Au over 2.1 metres at Gladiator

Nov 30, 2020

Bonterra Resources Inc. has announced very encouraging results from the ongoing drilling campaign at the Gladiator project. The results include several intersections, including 14.3 g/t Au over 2.1 metres ("m") and 3.4 g/t Au over 1.5 m in hole BA-20-24, 10.9 g/t Au over 0.5 m and 64.5 g/t Au over 0.6 m in hole BA-20-22 and 10.8 g/t Au over 0.5 m and 5.6 g/t Au over 1.5 m in hole BA-20-25. 

Since July 23, 2020, the Company has drilled 24 holes representing a total of 8,042 m at the Gladiator project. Results from 7 holes have been received since the press release dated November 5, 2020. Results from the remaining drilled holes are pending (Table and Figure 1).

The Gladiator deposit consists of three primary zones; the North, Main and Barbeau Zones. The North and the Main Zone are characterized by felsic dyke hosted mineralized quartz veins within steeply south-southeast dipping shear zones having developed at the contacts between mafic and intermediate volcanics and gabbroic intrusions. The North Corridor and Footwall Zones are a series of mineralized zones also spatially associated with felsic dykes dipping north-northeast. The south Zone is made of shear hosted subvertical north-north-east trending mineralized veins. These are interpreted to occur along similar subparallel mineralized trends to the North and Main Zones. The latest drilling has confirmed additional "North Dipper" mineralized volume interpreted with trends similar to the Barbeau Zone, moderately to steeply dipping north. (Figures 1 and 4).

Pascal Hamelin, CEO commented: "These latest drill results are very encouraging, and demonstrate the continuity of the Main and North Zones. The addition of mineralized volumes from the North Dipper and interpreted Footwall Zone subparallel to the Main and North Zones further enhances our understanding of the Gladiator deposit model."
